Seattle Multifamily Welcomes Additional Service Offering


Addition of Jim Schneider and team to Colliers bolsters service offering

With the recent hiring of Jim Schnieder, Colliers’ regional multifamily investment sales teams have gained an additional service offering to differentiate themselves in the market.

Schnieder has joined Colliers as Senior Vice President and Northwest Region Production Manager for Colliers Mortgage. Colliers Mortgage provides specialty debt financing for multifamily, healthcare and senior housing real estate through U.S. Government-Sponsored Enterprises. Joining Schneider are team members:

  • Madeleine Roach – Vice President, Production HUD
  • William “Wim” Roach – Vice President, Production Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac
  • Brian Lorenz – Senior Underwriter HUD, Production Conventional Capital Products
  • Shawn Needham – Analyst
The team will partner with Colliers’ Puget Sound multifamily team of Tim McKay, Dan Chhan, Sam Wayne, Matt Kemper and Adam Groberman to help grow the Colliers platform of full-service real estate investment solutions throughout the Pacific Northwest.

“Jim is a proven leader who will instantly add value for our clients seeking to maximize their returns in this low interest rate environment,” McKay said. “The ability to offer in-house agency debt and equity will further cement Colliers’ reputation as a best-in class option for full-service capital markets solutions.”

The multifamily team has worked with Schneider for nearly a decade, most recently at M&T Realty Capital. Notably, in the last two quarters they used their HUD experience to close more than $100M at rates inside 2.25% for multifamily and senior housing facilities.

Schneider comes to Colliers with more than 20 years of multifamily origination experience, having directly originated more than $5 billion in debt throughout his career using HUD, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, as well as other conventional products. Prior to joining Colliers, he ran a national HUD platform for JLL, and previously held progressively more senior roles throughout the real estate finance industry.

“I am excited to be joining a company with a sterling reputation for going above and beyond to uncover opportunities for its clients,” Schneider said. “We’re looking forward to working with Colliers’ local teams to streamline the client experience by providing additional solutions for them to access funding for real estate investments.”

“This addition to Colliers will greatly benefit our client base, providing them with expanded access to a full suite of advisory services, wherever they are in the lifecycle of their real estate investment,” said Beth Halvorsen, Executive Managing Director for Colliers’ Puget Sound brokerage operations.
